. >> brit, critics suggest that for all the obama administration's talk these days about pivoting from the middle east to a new focus on asia, that what china sees is a president who desperately wants to stay out of all foreign entanglements, and therefore there is some weakness there, a vacuum that they want to fill. >> that's the thing you worry about with a range of these administration moves that this president, unlike many of his predecessors, does not see the united states as necessarily the great bulwark in the world order, and that he prefers a more passive role, leading from behind, if you will, and that that provides the temptations for regimes like the chinese, the iranians and others, that they now have more freedom of movement because the president of the united states is indisposed to take tough measures. and that, i think is kind of where we are. and there is a unity among these differing issues in differing places in the world in that they test the resolve of the obama administration which these countries and their leaders suspect is not strong. >> speaking of testing t
're going to do with regards to infrastructure. being so excited when president obama talked about his commitment. there's and comprehensive support for that as well as other state-to-state initiatives. i wonder if you have the comment on the power of states uniting if youinfrastructure and see that as one of the economic drivers? i think we all know about innovation, creativity, and most things are economic drivers, if ou can't move from place to place and be mobile, that's eally an obstacle for our business community. >> going to tuck that away. we have state and local leaders. we did a phone call in the last few days. we had lieutenant governor, secretary of the state, senators, representatives, ayors on the line, probably numbers 300 plus. we're getting going. we're doing this every month, having a known call and sharing next july e runup to 23rd where as evan said, we're oing to have the first ever of its kind state and local gathering. be sure to read that. labels people here in the audience. raise your hands. feel free to talk to any of them about the questions you have. side,
infrastructure. our member banks outside when president obama talked about his commitment to rail. that kind of died. there wasn't a comprehensive support for that as well as other state to state initiatives. and so i'm wondering if you have a comment on the power of states uniting around transportation infrastructure? and if you also see it as one of the economic drivers. i think we all know about innovation, creativity and those things but if you can't move from place to place in the mobile, that's really an obstacle for our business community. >> first of our, thanks for sharing your story. i think that's awesome. i'm going to talk about the way and reflect on your comment for the rest of the day. because you are really what this is all about. we now have some state and local theaters. we did a few phone calls in the last few days. we had lieutenant governors, sectors of state, senators, representatives, mayors on the line, cobbling numbering 300 plus and we're just getting going. we are doing this every month having a phone call and sharing ideas in the run up to next july 23 where, as e
, but globally and certainly here in the united states. president obama has talked often about nelson mandela. there are several members of congress who on more than one occasion have talked about mandela and the impact he has had not just on politics and life in south africa, but on politics around the world, even here in this country. a nobel peace prize winner. someone who the anti-apartheid movement here in the united states looked to when he was in prison in robin island and other places. his release in 1990 and going on to become the leader of south africa. lot of lessons to be learned from his life. i am waiting word not only from the white house, but the congress and their reaction to the deaths of nelson man -- mandela. >> you did some reporting on president obama's south african trip, where president obama was very mindful of mr. mandela's health. remind the viewers of what president obama did when he went to south africa several months ago? >> well, again, i wasn't on that trip, but there was oncern, some talk even then. nelson mandela was in failing health at that time. that perha
serious respigectfu talk. we used to call barack obama no-drama obama. this isn't his style to go and style the show by making a grand gesture like this. but any time somebody wins a nobel peace prize like mandela, the world embraces them and the rules are broken. i remember sadat's funeral, all these people that weren't talking ended up talking at sadat's funeral and had a great healing effect in some ways. anything's possible here, but i don't think this is going to be a breakthrough moment. i think the big thing is what you just talked about, security. can we get through this without some horrible terrorist event or some major bad moment occurring. so i think everybody will be trying to get through the day. >> thank you so much. >>> still to come. why is the nsa spying on video gamers. >>> and then, what caused this plane to crash in san francisco earlier this year? new details are emerging about the flight's final moments. >>> and later, some of america's major cities are bracing for some real snow. so you can see like right here i can just... you know, check my policy here, a

, everybody talks about president obama. they are blaming president obama for this and that. he cannot do it alone. he cannot do anything by himself. thank you. guest: on your last point, that is right. there has to be a bipartisan solution to our budget problems. aspect about the budget deal seems to be developing, it would be an instance in which the democrats and republicans have agreed on something and the white house is presumably ok with. it would be something that has bipartisan support. i the food stamp question, think food stamp costs went up with the economy. thatthe economy went down, raises foodstamp expenditures because more people need the assistance. some of that is coming down. there is still a need out there. the farm bill is being debated on capitol hill and how much food stands would be cut, there is a big difference between the house plan and the senate plan. it is not clear what the cut wouuld bld be. people think there is a lot of fraud and abuse. the economy is improving. some people perceive less of a need. they are going to work something out. they are far apart.

, to sell the benefits of obama care to the american public. but what's the new message today? >> reporter: well, you know, talking about medicaid specifically in the state of north carolina, there are some states where you have seen there have been roadblocks to actually get it going. they say inside the white house that once you get it expanded, it's going to mean a lot more people being covered. but republicans are saying it's not just a cost issue. it's the question of when you look at these enrollment numbers, is it because people are actually signing up and paying into the system, or is it folks just getting medicaid? is that beefing up the numbers and sort of distorting the picture? gretchen? >> all right. ed henry live for us at the white house. thanks so much. >> good to see you. >>> more trouble for obama care now with the word the federal health exchange is now determining that some people with salaries as high as $80,000 a year, $80,000, are eligible for medicaid when clearly they are not. here's why that's a problem. it leaves them with little chance to get the subdy dized ins
barack obama, this wealth redistribution. >> last week the president talk about income inequality and it was more mobile upside -- he started railing -- are you serious? there's things i don't need official data. you're blowing smoke. this is america. people make it all the time in this country. what is really creating a problem, high taxes -- >> way to narrow the gap. >> we got the income inequality gap. this this president's idea of making it better. are you serious? how about this. taking the rungs out of the ladder. when you add these high taxes, high regulations, when you demonize success, when you think that everyone wants to crawl out of poverty into lower middle class and pay the bills week-to-week, if you think that's the american dream, your kidding yourself. >> the opposite of income inequality is income equality, and when you think you need to use the levers of power of the before government in order to coerce equality, that's what communism is about. so he is arguing for european style socialism. >> his presidency and everywhere where the democrats control. it's easy.
who have gathered in the soccer stadium so there could be a moment where president obama and raul castro may shake hands, may talk, who knows. >> be interesting to watch if they shake hands. that was the big thing, the gore people wanted no physical contact or substantive communications because of the relationship between the two countries. obviously, you can get as close as we are at an event like that and we will see what happens. you watch something like that. for the former presidents to be together, you know this because you have been at big events, the opening of presidential libraries here at home, the king hussain funeral, you had a group like that. the pope john paul ii funeral, you had several presidents together. it's a security challenge, number one, then the question is how do they work amongst themselves. it's an exclusive club. we do know on this flight over, the president is in his office, george and laura bush have the medical suite which is -- >> on air force one. >> on air force one. they can recon figure it, make it more comfortable and secretary clinton is in
this is a distraction from the real issue, which is the failure of obama care. the president would rather be talking about moral issues than the flawed rollout of his health care website. >> republicans must know or feel this issue is not good for them? >> i think it's more subtle. the president is trying to take the health care law and put it in the larger argument for what he wants to get done. it's a legacy item, a priority. the republicans are content to criticize the president on more americans being on food stamps. the question is what do you do about it? that's where the gap is fundamentally in washington today. >> i was trying to get the hash tag do better going. i would argue republicans have a big interest in this. cultivating business and job production here is much an agenda item on their platform as it is for democrats. >> it is. there's an interesting question. what is the republican agenda for poverty and inequality. this republican will cite people like teddy roosevelt. especially when it comes from the economy, from a different progressive era, 100 years ago. what's interesting is w

. there is no way to talk around it the other thing that the obama administration the white house is pushing is the success of the exchanges because they got 30,000 people supposedly enrolled. let's assume it's enrolled. they aren't enrolled. >> no ones that paid premiums? >> exactly. shopping and semienrolled. aspirationally enrolled let's put it that way. in two days. you do the math on that and continue that enrollment up until the deadline of the 23rd of december, you come out with a number, which means that of the a million people who have lost insurance, 6% will have it restored. all the rest will not have it. and that's without adding a single person who never had insurance in the first place. it is a disaster with the numbers that the white house is touting. >> another democrat, holding town halls in west virginia, senator joe manchin talking about what he he wants, a delay. >> transitional year and see if we with k. make these things work. if we best and we can't bit off more than we can chew. get back to what we can agree on. pretty common sense in west virginia how do you things.

obama doesn't have to face the voters anymore. so a lot of this talk about where he stands in the polls is only relevant if it actually leads to defections among democrats. the republicans already oppose him. if his low poll numbers cause democrats to head for the hills, that's when we should start saying it's really significant. so far, that hasn't happened. so the consequences of his low poll numbers are not yet serious. that doesn't mean they might not get serious in the new year if they can't get their act together on the website. if they do get their act together and these patches work, we don't know the antibiotics answer to that question yet, despite the cheerleading from the white house. if it does get better at the beginning part of the new year, he has every opportunity to have a much more successful 2014. and i think what we're starting to see now on this question of the minimum wage, which affects a lot more than kids, the assumption was it used to just be for teenagers. now it's affecting like 40% of minimum wage workers who are over 25 years old. this means that there are
